For the first time in DSGB’s history, two junior couples travelled abroad to compete in the international class-level event. Accompanied by their parents and coach, Semion and Daisy made the final in E class Latin American competition. They also danced in the Standard event alongside the second junior couple, Louise and Nicole, who proudly represented England in three out of four DanceSport Challenge Cups during 2016.
“Riga was a great event and a wonderful experience for everyone involved,” said Anastasia. “I’m glad to have participated in all four DanceSport Challenge Cup series. It has really built up my confidence on the floor and helped me realise the training required to improve my dancing. It was brilliant to be travelling with two junior couples, too. They’ve enjoyed it a lot and are excited by the opportunity to compete abroad.”
